Abstract (en)

A multi-media system is developed by an automatic process (10) which takes passive background (40) and foreground (45) images and automatically generates bitmaps (46-49) representing individually addressable images and icons for navigation from one screen to another. The process is carried out in a structured manner in which certain conditions are pre-set. Modifications are easily implemented by changing the pre-set parameters and repeating the process. A structured authoring file is generated which uses pre-set searching structures to retrieve bitmaps for the target application. Additional navigation commands may be easily added at the final stage. <IMAGE>
